About the author

Matt Cosgrove

Matt Cosgrove hails from Sydney, Australia. His passion for the interplay between prose and pictures has seen some slight detours in his career path though—including Creative Director at Australia’s number one fashion magazine Marie Claire, Lecturer in Comic Art at the University of Western Sydney, and a tragically short-lived stint as one of the guys who drew the animations for the television show, Burgo’s CatchPhrase!However, despite these dalliances, (Don’t judge— he had a mortgage to pay!) his heart has always belonged only truly to books.As a child, his love for the medium was sparked by the brilliance, and naughtiness, of Roald Dahl (Matt could recite Revolting Rhymes by memory) and Raymond Briggs (Every single week Matt would re-borrow Fungus the Bogeyman from the school library). And if he didn’t have a book in his hand, he had a pencil, practicing drawing. While other kids played with their Masters of the Universe figurines, Matt posed them in scenes and then sketched them.Now, as a father, Matt’s work is heavily influenced by his children, simultaneously his most enthusiastic supporters and most ruthless critics.
